Iris, Very sorry if I have not replied, and don'e believe I did. I don't check this area of Find A Grave too often.

Please go to this side. I am related to all the Rodgers/Rogers listed. Our D goes in and out over history.

Thank you for your information about (your family) Lt. Frank D. Gallion.

I have seen it in the distance from the dijk, and some year later I have seen it's plane on a temponery exposition about the airwar here over Holland and the Ijsselmeer.
I know he was brought home afther it's recovery, but did not exactly where he was buried for his final resting place.
Thank you again, and have a great weekend,

RE: Sarah Ward
There aren't any persons that do it for no charge that I know of. There are a couple of people that do repairs and make new stones for a fee. There is one in Bloomington and there is another fellow by the name of Casey Winingham. If you are a facebook member just type in his name, he has a facebook page that shows his work.

I added her parents and husband. I am unable to add her siblings because I didn't create their memorial.
